Dr. Michael Bazlinton is a part time UK Family Doctor - GP. He completed his GP training in 2006 and started the bodymapping clinic in 2017.
The aim of the clinic is to provide a service for motivated individuals who want to apply science and technology to understand and manage their current health.
The service is for those who would rather avoid medication, short term fixes and instead prefer to look deeper into the route cause of ill health. This approach is commonly called functional medicine.
The Institute of Functional Medicine (https://www.ifm.org/functional-medicine/) describes this approach:
Functional medicine emphasises a definable and teachable process of integrating multiple knowledge bases within a pragmatic intellectual matrix that focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s environmental inputs and his or her physiological function.
The Institute for Functional Medicine teaches health care professionals how to apply these principles in practice through an intensive 5 day training course called Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™.
